Former actor Hamza Ali Abbasi recently took to social media to share his opinion over the culture of religious clerics holding a significant position in our society. Calling the Quran and Hadith the ultimate guide to religion, the Waar actor posed questions over the need of following a ‘spiritual leader’.
I fail to understand why we need a Messiah or an Imam or a Murshid…. When we HAVE THE QURAN!… We only need good teachers…

A few days after Hamza’s post, Shehroz Sabzwari has decided to pick it up again and respond back as he emphasized the need for having a religious guide.
“I fail to understand why some people become thaikaydaar (incharge) of Islam,” said the Hassad actor said while adding, “We all need a murshad or guide to keep us on the right path.”
“Who teaches us to love and teaches to sacrifice ourselves for Prophet (PBUH),” the actor further wrote.
Emphasizing that Islam isn’t merely fulfillment of rulings given clear cut, the actor stated that for him loving the Prophet (PBUH) translates into the completion of religion.
“For me religion is loving Prophet Muhammad more than my kids, my life, my family and my wealth,” said Shehroz.
And I fail to understand why some people become ‘THAIKHAYDAAR’ of Islam. We all need a Guide And a MURSHAD’S company to keep us on the right path. Jo pyaar karna sikhaye aur RASOOLALLAH SAWW Kay naam par QURBAAN Hona Sikhaye. For me Shahroz Sabzwari DEEN is only RASOOLALLAH SAWW

Well, that’s another way to look at, but given the fact that Islam is a religion for all, we hope the two men agree to disagree without trying to prove their own approach to the right one.
